An EHR is an individual's official, digital health record and can be securely shared among multiple facilities and agencies. Through the use of EHR, health providers have access to vital patient data such as medical history, lab results, medical images and patient billing information. This discipline conveys the integration of information technology into healthcare to support the workflow and business objectives of clinicians. All course outlines for the program are included.
